We'd like a PAYPAY option too! Seems that would roughly double our revenue!
Seriously, though, I believe the primary reason for not offering PayPal is
the difficulty of integrating it with our current back-end systems, which
automatically generate license codes and otherwise fulfill orders
electronically. A secondary reason is the huge chunk PayPal takes out, once
you consider their rates for handling transactions and converting
currencies. It makes sense for items like Revolution Studio and Enterprise,
but would hurt a lot on smaller items like Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor.
Nevertheless, we're investigating a change in our online store for 2008 and
you may see PayPal and/or Google Checkout there eventually.

Definitely. Actually I commend people who are purchasing for their
determination. Improving the experience is definitely on the list. One step
was to eliminate coupon codes for the RevSelect Bundle purchase. We put up
an interstitial screen for people to select the appropriate bundle and
terms. While it adds a screen, it eliminates the confusing instructions for
coupon codes that we usually have to supply. What did you think of that?

any Order Now button to see it.)
